i.MX27 SOM

Strategic Test has released what it says as the worlds smallest Freescale i.MX27 processor-based System on Module (SOM). Called the TX27, it measures just 67.6mm x 26mm x 4.2mm and contains an 400MHz i.MX27 processor coupled with 64Mbyte mobile DDR-SDRAM (expandable to 128MByte), 128Mbyte NAND flash memory, a wide operating temperature range of -20C to 85C and a 200-pin SODIMM connector.

First shipments are slated to start in Q1 08. Simultaneously, Strategic Test will start deliveries of the Development Kit-5 that is based on the TX27 module and will be supplied with both Linux 2.6 and Microsoft Windows CE 6.0

The i.MX 27 is derived from the popular i.MX21 processor and based on the ARM926EJ-S core. The i.MX27 adds a H.264 hardware codec for D1 high resolution video processing, an Ethernet 10/100 MAC, security, plug-and-play connectivity and more power management features.

Other features include USB 2.0 host and device, LCD controller supporting resolutions to 1,024 x 1,024pixels, camera interface and three 4-wire UARTs. The device also features I?C, two SSI/AC97/IS, 16-bit Compact flash and memory interface, two 4-wire SDIO, keypad 5x5 support, CSPI and universal 1.8V interfaces.

The TX27 module accepts an input voltage from various sources such as one-cell Li-ion/polymer (3-4.2V) and 5V USB supply or AC wall adapter.

Up to 1A of output current on either the 1.8V or 3.3V power supply outputs of the TX27 module can be used to power the carrier board. This means that in many applications the customer designed product can be powered from the above without needing to add a power supply to their carrier board design.

According to the company, customers will be able to obtain the i.MX27 design documentation from Freescale without needing to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.
